Well first of all welcome back to my blog if you haven’t been here in a while. Time to start posting stuff again. If it is your first time welcome and please browse around.  I offer several free tutorial videos and prints, books and t-shirts in the store.

I was honored to get to teach at the Concept Design Academy in Pasadena recently for the vehicle design class taught by John Frye. I showed a few of my techniques in Photoshop, Painter and talked about working in the design industry. I do really enjoy teaching and I think I learn a lot myself when I do that. This concept is based on a series of flying motorcycles I had been drawing in my sketchbook. Then I used a robot to pilot the cycle because I have been doing an Instagram challenge another artist had set. His name is Dacosta Bayley and he is promoting his book called March of Robots on kickstarter. So I thought why not I love robots too, you can flip through my Instagram @dwaynevance account and see all the robots I have been drawing. So I thought I would share my new image and get my blog fired back up. Go through the gallery section of this post and you will see all my thumbnail sketches and several steps leading up to the final piece.  Thanks for stopping by.

It was a great time to be refreshed and get prepared to take on some big tasks. I have a new tutorial series planned for Masters of Chicken Scratch blog along with some tutorials for an online learning community. I have also been talking Continue Reading…

This is an updated garage scene from the Mac’s Mini Rod app. Mac is a boy that loves to hang out with his dad. They share the same passion for building sick hot rods. So Mac made his own work area and started building his designs out of found parts from around the garage. In this story you will learn more about Continue Reading…

 

This is a small sketch I did recently on my Ipod using a program called Brushes and my new Bamboo stylus from Wacom

Took me about 20mins to get it done. I used a reference shot of the 1909 Blitzen Benz (very cool race car)

I ask myself this question all the time. How do I stay ahead of the game in the design world. There are so many ways to approach this question. I know that as an artist and designer I never feel that I can say that Continue Reading…

 

I recently had the opportunity to work with an advertising agency by the name of CP+B on a really fun project. Domino’s Pizza is running a contest with Local Motors to create a creative Continue Reading…
